Here are some ideas of objects you can use at home and practical methods to help your child to understand a particular concept
Here is a part whole model, we know that 26 is the whole number. Count out 26 objects
We know 9 is a part so we take 9 of the 26 pencils and place on the 9 part.
The remaining objects on the whole is the other missing part. So the answer is 17.
Sharing/Division -12 divided by 3. Count out 12 objects and share equally between 3 groups
There are 4 objects in each group, so 12 divided by 3 equals 4.
Column addition /partitioning. The big spoons are tens and the forks are the ones.
Times tables, repeated addition and division (this example is counting in 3's)
Counting in 2's, doubling and repeated patterns
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
